I only have a minute!
Thought I'd stop by and take a quick look at the new "digs" here!
Slesh, this is awesome indeed!
I simply LOVE that Lighthouse pic at the top!

OK - I have to run!
I'll be back soon! cheers

After checking things out, I have to agree,
the new look is cool!
I think Slesh...uhhh, Rose Blossom and Lil' Turtle mostly know a lot about that Lighthouse.
I know Slesh/RB LOVES Lighthouses.

Lil' Turtle's Godfather had a personal history with that Lighthouse.

Yes he did...He was one of the last caretakers of the buglight. He met his wife at the local store when he went to the local town to get groceries for him, his brother and his father. How romantic....
They had to close it down due to vandalism . Then they had decided to restore the lighthouse according to its originality. I was there along with almost my whole family for the ribbon ceremony where they turned the light back on...It was very touching.

He was a good man, your Godfather, Lil' Turtle and he had so many great stories about that Lighthouse.

Its real name is Long Beach Bar Lighthouse and is called Bug Light as it looked like a bug setting on top of the water.

There is another one that Lil' Turtle's Godfather's (and uncle) grandfather was caregiver of for a long time. It is Cedar Beach Lighthouse and the family is active in seeing it completely restored as well.
There are many Lighthouses that have been restored and thank God there are people who love them and care enough to do something.

Yes, they do alot of promotional tours to the different lighthouses to make money to help with the restorations.
